for every american jobs. >> ibm @ rahm and i approve this message. host: that ad was quickly refuted by the obama campaign. this ad became a real distraction to the campaign in the following weeks. they will say if you looked at where the results were in ohio, where they lost was not in the automobile district but elsewhere. it created a stink over the romney campaign in the final days that hurt him everywhere. to us, this ad captures something important. it is their uneasiness about talking about issues that are not helpful for them earlier on but they had to be talked about. this saw the automobile issue was playing on obama's turf. they were talking about it so it was an issue out there. when you don't talk about it and don't explain it, that's a problem. there was a notion run the campaign, if you are explaining, you are a loser. the problem was by not explaining or even addressing, they let themselves be defined. they realize this late in the game. there was huge pressure from elements of his ohio campaign team to put something up, an ad on the autumn issue. they finally did and

working faster and put more americans back to work and more americans with tax rules. how we get there, god only knows. >> god only knows? mr. speaker, you're supposed to know. you are supposed to lead your caucus. you clearly cannot. friday, president obama explained it this way. >> nobody can get 100% of what they want. this is not simply a contest between parties in terms of who looks good and who doesn't. there are real world consequences to what we do here. >> ahh, but what if the goal is to do nothing? then a certain faction of the republican party is getting 100% of what they want. the republicans refusing to vote on a deal at all is their mandate because the ideological emphasis apparently shifted from politics and policy together and over to the process itself. the goal? do nothing. on purpose. bring government to its knees and drown it in a bathtub. will they do the same to our nation? with me at the table is richard kim, bob herbert, angela ride, and attorney raul rraez. what is going on here? >> what you are seeing is the republican party. the last time a congressional repu

. >> the second inauguration of barack obama is also at hand. what will we see differently here? >> probably not the huge crowds you saw, because that was a historical moment, the first african-american president, and everybody wanted to say they were there. i don't think you will have that crowd. and secondly, i think they learned a lot of lessons, because there were a lot of mistakes made from the distribution of too many tickets to tunnels being closed, and people redirected. i think it's going to be much, much better. >> you talk about the closing of the tunnel, and it was not so much they closed the 3rd street tunnel, it's the fact that people got stuck in the 3rd street opportunity for hours and questions about safety came about, and they say they are going to hire more staff, more monitors around the mall and the capital where the inauguration takes place. >> they will follow social media, and people can do it right from the scene. they will be able to see right away if something like that tunnel were to occur again, we would realize, oh, no, they are monitoring it in real time. >> th
